Oh, Bettie...

Pinup model Bettie Page died tonight in Los Angeles at 85.

In an era before starlets could be famous for being famous, Bettie Page really created an industry around herself as she created her career and her calling. She made it OK to be sexy, and then some. She made it OK to be outspoken, and then some. :-)

Damn, that's a pity. She really blazed a trail in her younger days.

It's amazing that even though her pics were taken in the '40s and '50s, with a lot of them if you didn't know you may have thought they had been taken in the present.

I'd just like to point out that she actually has thighs (*gasp*)... I thought you had to be emaciated to be hot ;-)
